Mercer Named Coolidge Principal

Enid Public Schools is pleased to announce Shea Mercer as the new Coolidge Elementary principal for the 2021-2022.

Mercer has been with the district since 2012. She began her career with EPS as an elementary teacher at McKinley Elementary and went on to serve as assistant principal of Glenwood and Monroe Elementary. She then went to serve families as the assistant principal job at Coolidge Elementary in July 2020.

Mercer will begin her duties July 1.

Mercer said she’s looking forward to taking on this new role and thrilled to continue serving the students of Coolidge Elementary.

“I am excited for the opportunity to continue to serve the students, parents, and staff members of Coolidge Elementary,” said Mercer. “I look forward to continuing to provide a safe and nurturing learning environment for every Coolidge Colt.” 

According to Randy Rader, Assistant Superintendent of Elementary Schools, Mercer was the best choice to lead one of the largest elementary schools in the district, with more than 400 students enrolled.

“Shea will do an outstanding job as the principal at Coolidge Elementary,” said Rader. “Her experience as an assistant principal over the last three years, the last of which was at Coolidge, makes her the right choice to continue the excellent leadership our families and teachers at Coolidge deserve.”

Mercer received both her bachelor’s and master’s in education from Northwestern Oklahoma State University. Mercer holds certifications in elementary education and elementary principal.

Mercer succeeds Sherri Hendrie as principal of Coolidge Elementary. Hendrie recently accepted the position of principal at Prairie View Elementary for the 2021-2022.
